A checklist for more inclusive, accessible, measurable and understandable talks

I’ve spent the better part of the last seven years presenting at all kind of conferences, meetups and client meetings and I’ve learned a lot along the way. I learned about different needs of different audiences and how to prepare your talk to make it as easy as possible for organisers to work with you. More importantly, though, I learned how to ensure that my presentations can be understood, don’t offend and work in even the worst organised environments.

In order to share this knowledge, and to remind myself of the necessities I put together a checklist to fill out before my talks. Not all of these bits are applicable to the talk you may give, but it is a good reminder of what you can do to help others understand what you do. And to make sure you can show your company what you did.

I hope this helps!
